UTA Faces Another Longtime Rival

Remember last year at CPC…the opening game, the excitment…6000+ fans for a critical Southland matchup between two of the league’s top teams. CPC was really rockin’. A thrilling 1-point win. What a night.

Not sure tomorrow’s game will live up to last year’s contest, but we have a good chance at a win. Mavs have won 3 out their last 4 games and 5 of 8.

UTSA (5-17) is only 1-11 in the WAC…their only win a 78-75 victory at Seattle (7-15, 2-10 WAC).  We won in San Antonio a month ago, 75-67.

UTSA features the WAC’s leading scorer, Kannon Burrage at 17.8PPG

Looking at some other numbers:

This season, UTSA averages about 65ppg vs. UTA’s 61, but on defense allows 73 a game while UTA only allows 60.

The really interesting statistic (to me anyway):
FG % defense…
UTA: 36% (1st in WAC by 3% — NMSU is 2nd at 39%),
UTSA: 48% (last in WAC, Texas State was 10th out of 11 WAC teams at 46%).

Anything can happen, but hopefully our Mavs can keep the momentum going. Go Mavs!
